Installed OK on win7 laptop, eventually. Copy and paste of the Key pasted a stray space with the key value, and I got the unlikely error that this key has already been used. Deleting the space resulted in registration OK. For those who worry about such things, registration requires a working e-mail address.

A nice simple interface, and choosing pictures of different original sized resulted in output that was surprisingly good considering I had reduced one of them to an eighth of the original size. There was a good choice of output formats too, though I have only tried one so far.

I would have liked a pop-up message saying the conversion had completed.

The colour correction facility made a slight difference to the output, but the result looked natural and the original was a photo taken in good daylight, so it doesn't seem to over-correct.

A nice well-behaved product. I will keep it.

#13 MikeR - I also have used Irfanview for years and am happy with it. I've never tried to batch resize since I prefer working with individual files. But, it does allow me to batch rename so I can keep track of how many photos I have.

As a clarification of my comment 25: the Xemico link says Photo Gadget works with XP and previous Windows versions. It does work for me in Win7 but now I see that's only because it integrates ok into the right-click menu for my preferred file manager, Power Desk v6 (which is an older version of PD).

Checking Windows Explorer's right-click menu doesn't show Photo Gadget as an option, so it won't work in Windows 7 or 8.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

#12 david Craker: I think Photo Gadget v1.1 (freeware version from Xemico) will do what you want:

Will always prefer RIOT (Radical Image Optimization Tool) http://luci.criosweb.ro/riot/.

It's free, small and portable.

As a followup to my earlier DLLReg.dll issue trying to install v6.2 over v5.2 under WinXP, I was finally able to do a clean re-install of v6.2 simply by first performing an UNINSTALL of the Batch Picture Resizer software.

For those who are looking at free or other resizing options,if you are only resizing smart phone images, then price and ease of use may be the main consideration. For those of us who use more advanced cameras, the quality of the image after change is what is more important. For example, none of the alternatives listed have mentioned if they can process PSD,or TIF images. Just working on JPG will lead to image quality degredation, even with recovery products, like Topaz's DeJPEG.

This program will handle TIFF and RAW files. I don't have adobe PSD to check out.

Will anyone tell us the image handling capabilities of the other products mentioned?

The XP picture resizer powertool is available for use with windows 7 from http://imageresizer.codeplex.com/releases/view/82827
This is the only picture resizer you will ever need.

#18 & #19 I agree the the price is a little much. The Photo Manager I mentioned in #17 had batch watermarking & resizing, EXIF editor and more and is only $15.

#15 Frayed Knots.
To pay $30 for such limited functionality probably means you going to do some pretty serious resizing so I posted them to aid in getting the best out of the program.
Forgetting the technical aspects within the links they also contain some images as examples and just thought they may help in choosing the correct method of resizing.

My photography experience goes back to the 1950’s and I like quality to the extent that I still have a 5 x 4 plate camera with a Voigtlander APO-Lanthar, and my pride and joy a Thornton Pickard quarter plate single lens reflex in all its wooden glory. :-)

I am about in the same boat as Karl in #1 I can use my built in application features so this program for myself is kind of mute.

After installation I as well noticed how friendly it is and simple to use. If there is anybody out there who needs a simple solution to image resizing this would be a product to look at.

I am not sure if I would honestly pay $30 for a product that has these type of features but that's a topic for another place.

Nice program but if I had to pay 30 bucks, I would rather use my Photo Manager (http://www.customdworks.com/picManager.aspx). The "Share" feature allows you to create a resized set of selected photos, plus it lets me also add watermark in a single step.

If you double the size of the original, it quadruples the size, no thanks. Uninstalled.

#David Craker: Try IRFANVIEW which has a short learning curve.

#XP MAN: Those links are truly awesome but I think they have little relevance to the issue at hand. (i.e.: I have NO idea what those guys are talking about, but I sure do admire their brane cells!)

Not a relevant program for me as I resizes as I manipulate in Photoshop, but for the average camera user this could be quite useful.

#Giovanni: thanks as usual for the great links!

#Karl: Dude, do you ever SLEEP?? Great test run report as usual!

You can do that in Picasa
Resize one or more as you please

Nice effort by today's developer and good of GAOTD to facilitate it but sometimes one has to wonder if computer users are as street smart as they should be -- and especially when it comes to being aware of long established (like, er, 20 years), world-renowned, multi-million user base, constantly updated and entirely FREE image editing software IrfanView.

I can't believe folks have never heard of it and/or don't know how to use its facilities but to judge from some of the comments here, a link to a quick tutorial written by an independent pro seems in order:


I'm not knocking the $29.99 Soft Orbits product, rather pointing out to them as well as anyone else who might be interested that a commercial developer is always going to have to deliver massively more than Irfanview already does if it's to have much hope of success. Thanks, GOTD, and thanks Soft Orbits, but like many another I've been doing batch processing for years and years, for free, with IrfanView.

I just need a simple right click app that lets me right click on a file (jpg etc) and lets me do an image in a size I select.. Just a simple one click and bang it is done with a copy with a new simple file name addition.. That's what I need, not some antiquanted all in bulk tool that needs me to load a program then select files then execute then select file sizes then selct file extensions, then select where to save then wait ten minutes to do the job..

Pretty good software. Similar to Quick Image Resizer which I purchased a while ago.

Useful for converting large image files in the 3 to 4 MB range to a more email-friendly 200KB range without significant image deterioration. That way you can send the 10 pictures you took of your cat to someone much faster and easier.

@ #4.
No. That is incorrect. This Will increase pic sizes as well.

As #1 Karl pointed out there are a number of options for the resize method, further information can be found at the following links:-
The last one is included not for the mathematics but more for the images it contains.

Possibly understanding this will make today's useful download even more useful.

I've been using Faststone for several years so it's a "no thanks" from me this time. Keep up the good work nevertheless. Thanks.

So, this program won't increase the size of a picture? Only decrease?

Better FREE alternatives:

http://luci.criosweb.ro/riot (also PORTABLE)

So there's no need to pay anything for this kind of APP, as long as you are aware of that of course!

Enjoy! ^_^

This is a good program and I liked it too as it can be used in any version of Windows OS. It can resize multiple pics in a no go. Used it in previous GAOTD and is satisfied. But still wondering do Windows XP users need this when they have image resizer powertoy from Microsoft.

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1.2 Pro 64 bit system.

We had had version 5.2 of this software on April 17th of this year. Here are the old reviews:

A Russian company with address&phone. We had had several software from this company.

Upon start a small resizable window opens. You add your pictures or a folder, you define the resize options in pixel or percent, you can do some picture manipulation (grey or “normalized” color) and you resize.

That’s done in a simple and understandable way. For the resize freak you can switch between 18 (!) resizing methods from bicubic to Lanzcos or Bessel. Are there more than 18 ? …

Included is a simple watermark feature with text or image, only text rotation is missing.

This is done in simple, but effective way. Perhaps somebody could check the German translation... "Bilde hinzufügen" should be "Bilder hinzufügen" and some more.

A well made small utility. Does what it claims. And a claim (*) No special knowledge required - that's correct if you use the default values.

I’ll use the built in features in my photo application -> reboot

(*) I always search and check the claims, which a company writes on their pages. Sometimes I find interesting statements. ;-)
